Apatite gemstones work well when placed over various Chakras according to their color - green for the Heart Chakra, orange for Sacral, yellow for Solar Plexus and so on.
It is believed that wearing apatite is beneficial in all matters to do with bones and teeth.
This is a good size for a center-stone in a ring design.
For gem web photos - - it would help some inexperienced gem buyers like me to show the gem next to a common object such as a US dime for example. Two of the blue star sapphires I purchased are not suited for ring mounting - - way too small. Now I know to purchase a caret weight of about 12 to 20 carets.
Most of the time I order from gemselect.com is for custom orders I get the pleasure to freely design for. Clients always love the gems. They also arrive in a timely manner, just as in the pictures, great prices. Also enjoy window shopping the really pricey ones :)
Always a fantastic selection of gemstones in an affordable price range from inexpensive, nice collector's stones to high fashion jewelry pieces. I always trust that the item will be as represented. I purchased a kyanite today and know the stone will be genuine and high quality.
